The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.

BeoLab 2 Active Subwoofer
Manufactured: 2001 - present

It's the smallest things that make all the difference!
BeoLab 2 Subwoofer: Put yourself at the eye of the storm and enjoy a new sound experience. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better - it does. The BeoLab 2 subwoofer has only one purpose: to exploit the new world of sound that Digital technology has opened up. Sit back, hold on tight - and experience a deep bass sensation you only thought possible at the cinema or concert hall. BeoLab 2 is the latest (2001) member of the loudspeaker family and has been specially designed to handle the low end of the sound spectrum. It completes your surround set-up and allows you to experience details in movies and music that you've never heard before. It just about as good as bass gets!

The new powerful BeoLab 2 adds a totally new dimension to the Bang & Olufsen sound experience. As digital technology opens up a whole new world of sound, the compact BeoLab 2 subwoofer lets you experience a deep bass sensation that you only thought possible at the cinema or concert hall. Reproducing the low frequency sounds that normal loudspeakers can't reproduce, BeoLab 2 utilises its built-in 850 watt amplifier to ensure that you no longer only hear your favourite piece of film or music, but feel it as well.

Adaptive Bass Linearisation
Adaptive Bass Linearisation (ABL) is a process patented by B&O and is incorporated in BeoLab loudspeakers. The idea is to use the surplus capacity in amplifiers and driver units, arising by normal listening levels, for a bass extension - a sound reproduction with more bass, than the loudspeaker otherwise would be able to produce.

The function is adaptive. This means that the loudspeaker adapts to the signal it receives. Loudspeaker drivers are therefore fully exploited, without suffering mechanical or electronic abuse, and the built in amplifiers are not subjected to signals would otherwise create an overload situation.

ABL gives stunning bass reproduction considering the size of the loudspeaker in which it is incorporated, under normal listening levels.

"The ultimate home entertainment experience: Bang & Olufsen launches two new products to complete its Home Cinema system

The introduction of Bang & Olufsen’s new generation of widescreen Beovision Avant television and a new BeoLab 2 subwoofer have completed a powerful home cinema experience the Bang & Olufsen way. Available from June 2001, these two products are perfect for film aficionados who want a trip to the movies from the comfort of their favourite sofa.

As the electronic curtain sweeps aside, the TV turns noiselessly to face the viewer and begins the feature screening with Dolby Digital® surround sound to ensure the best picture and sound quality ever produced from the integrated video recorder and/or the separate DVD system.

The new flat widescreen surface (called Real Flat) is not only unique, attractive and contemporary, but offers technically advanced picture quality in either 28” or 32” versions. True to Bang & Olufsen’s philosophy of simplifying rather than over-complicating technology, the whole cinema set-up is controlled by just one remote the Beo4 – it can even dim your room lighting when used with compatible light control systems.

• With the introduction of BeoLab 2, it’s now possible to fully exploit the multi-channel surround sound offered by today’s digital media. It is powerful enough to effectively reproduce the deepest bass effects, and visually appealing enough to fit into the entire Bang & Olufsen cinema set-up.

• Beovision Avant features a built-in Dolby Digital® surround sound decoder, and includes automatic detection of this 5.1 channel digital sound format

• Accessing Bang & Olufsen’s DVD 1 is fast and simple through seamless Beo4 operation

• The BeoLab 2 subwoofer delivers an exceptionally deep bass reproduction compared to it’s modest physical size. Powered by a 850 watt ICE Power amplifier, it is characterised by a combination of compactness and efficiency.

• The BeoLab loudspeaker programme features freedom in choice regarding loudspeaker design, colour and placement possibilities.

• A/V compatibility - Connecting Beovision Avant to a Bang & Olufsen audio product creates synergy, and provides a number of benefits, such as easy operation of all sources via only one remote control, and logical system functions."

"When it comes to sound reproduction we believe there's only one relevant parameter: How close can we come to the originally recorded sound. We feel an obligation not to disturb the intentions of the artist by adding unnatural elements to the acoustic image. Therefore all Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers share the same goal. They differ in size and shape and in terms of sound pressure level. But they are all developed to reproduce the natural, unaltered sound as closely as possible " - Bang & Olufsen catalogue 2001 - 2002

BeoLab 2: an evolutionary history
The first design model of BeoLab 2, was finished in high gloss black . Its width was 230mm and the loudspeaker membranes were shielded behind a round grille. The model expressed the wishes of designer David Lewis to reflect proper balance between both the demands for excellent sound reproduction and good looks.

In designing the new sub-woofer, the next step was to make a drawing of the exterior as a starting point, in relation to its internal components. In allowing these components to be fitted, BeoLab 2's specifications had to be enlarged. This new width became 4cm larger. However, it was widely agreed that this was marginally too large so a compromise of 260mm was agreed upon by the design group at Struer. And this is the width of the BeoLab 2 today!
